Fertilizer for Healthy Plants
All plants require light, air, water, and nutrients to grow. As they mature, plants often use up the naturally occurring nutrients in the soil around the root zone. These nutrients need to be regularly replaced in order for the plants to continue to grow and remain strong, fertilizers can help with this.
There are three numbers listed on all fertilizer packaging.
Together, the three elements are referred to as primary or macronutrients. Micronutrients include copper, iron, manganese, zinc, boron, chlorine, and molybdenum. Some or all of these may be included in the formulation and are listed accordingly. The actual number represents the percentage present of that element. Fertilizer often contains in smaller quantities such secondary nutrients as calcium, magnesium, and sulphur.
Different types of plants require different care.
